Video Review: Bruins @ Sabres 2.24.12
Goal 1 – Andrej Sekera from Tyler Ennis and Drew Stafford (Sabres 1-0)
Brad Marchand. This goal is on you. Both Marchand and Seguin are way too low in their defensive zone coverage. Marchand’s back is facing the point man, which is his coverage. By the time he realizes Sekera is coming into the high slot, it’s too late. Sekera, all alone in the slot, rifles it past Rask high stick side. Leino does a nice job briefly screening Rask when the pass gets to Sekera.
Goal 2 – Zdeno Chara, Unassisted
A little confused with Derek Roy’s clearing attempt here. He shoots it right to Chara. Roy had a lot of time, he just needed to take his time pick up his head and look. Yes, its that easy. The boards are always the best choice, preferably high on the glass. Chara grabs the half-hearted clearing attempt easily because its on the ice and shoots it right back on Miller. Miller is deep in his crease not expecting the shot. To put more shame on Roy, Chara is his coverage on the penalty kill. Chara moves in to the top of the circle because Roy is dilly dallying in the corner from his failed clearing attempt.
